Sydney Harbour, the most beautiful in the world, is celebrated in this lyrical documentary. Pre-dawn a memory of the Harbour’s convict past appears like a dream, but as the sun rises and the trawlers trek back with their cargo of prawns the Harbour comes to life in 1978. Australia’s multi-cultural society is epitomised in this film.
